Chile Colorado

This authentic Mexican meal has a history of long-held tradition and is tied in with local folklore. It also happens to be easy to make. Every time I go home, it’s on my shortlist of home-cooked must-haves.

Chile Colorado is considered good luck (much like menudo). It’s usually reserved for holidays and special occasions, but it’s also known to cure colds and hangovers. Your friends and family will love the tradition and the flavor!
